    The oil companies may be starting with crap 84 octane gasoline (which is the real source of everyone's trouble).



    Sorry but that is just not true, The Ethanol IS the problem. Attacks some/most rubbers, draws moisture, goes bad very quickly, corrodes just about everything. Yea good stuff.

    The American Petroleum Institute study:

    "The additional E15 testing, completed this month, has identified an elevated incidence of fuel pump failures, fuel system component swelling, and impairment of fuel measurement systems in some of the vehicles tested. E15 could cause erratic and misleading fuel gauge readings or cause faulty check engine light illuminations. It also could cause critical components to break and stop fuel flow to the engine. Failure of these components could result in breakdowns that leave consumers stranded on busy roads and highways. Fuel system component problems did not develop in the CRC tests when either E10 or E0 was used. It is difficult to precisely calculate how many vehicles E15 could harm. That depends on how widely it is used and other factors. But, given the kinds of vehicles tested, it is safe to say that millions could be impacted."

    Tests show E15 use may harm fuel systems in millions of vehicles
